Emu Industry Promotional Videos, available here on DVD

The following three promotional videos were produced for emu farmers/producers to show at fairs, shows, class presentations, farm tours, etc. to inform their potential customers about the emu and its wonderful products. 
The three videos discuss the emu and a general over view of its products, emu meat, and emu oil.
On the DVD, there are three voice options to all of thes videos, including the default female voice that you hear here, an alternate female voice, and a male voice.  The DVD is interactive, with choices of which videos to play, and in which order.
Please feel free to tell me your comments about these videos by emailing me at .

Emu Industry Promo Video

This video is about the emu itself and  most of its products, including meat, oil, eggs, feathers, and leather.
Because cute emu chicks may not be the best way to sell meat and oil, there is also a version with the segment about the emu's life cycle edited out on the DVD.

Emu Meat Promo Video

This video talks about the taste and nutritional composition of emu meat, as well as how to cook it successfully.

Emu Oil Promo Video

This video is about emu oil and its different properties.
